is not a solution to the crisis we face as a nation. only honest, law-abiding gun owners will be affected and our children will remain vulnerable to the ineactivitiability of more tragedy. a lot of these proposals that the president put out were greeted with lukewarm response. john boehner's spokesman put out a statement saying the house will look at those recommendations and if the senate pass as bill they will look at that too but no commitment move to any legislation in the house of representatives. so, larry, it looks like a lot of these proposals will not happen but there were more than 20 elements of what he proposed today, the president that were, in fact, executive actions that he could sign today and enforce through the executive branch of the government and that he did. so the rest of the proposals will be legislative and we'll have to see how they fare. >> as always, thanks eamon javers. the national rifle association is pushing back with a tough new ad campaign labelling the president an elitist hypocrite for allowing his own kids to have their protection. >> are the president's kids
to ban guns from law-abiding citizens for decades. they add the american people know gun bans do not work and we are confident congress will reject senator dianne feinstein's wrong-headed approach. right here we'll debate. let's go to our cnbc contributor and author of "divider in chief" and kay bailey hudson. i was reading former new york police chief bill braddon who thinks the gun ban is crazy. there's 350 million firearms out there, including assault weapons. you think this feinstein approach has a chance? >> well, i think that harry reid gave you the signal that it's going to be very difficult because he said i'm not bringing up anything in the senate that isn't going pass in the house. because he has vulnerable democrats who are up for election in 2014 that are in states that value their guns, and i think that it's going to be very difficult. and i also think republicans are looking at other issues like violence in the movies, violence on these video games and that it's a culture thing that has to be talked about and a part of the debate as well as just always focusing on the limita
't require a vote. it is the law. it says you do nothing, the whole sequester goes through, 1.2 trillion, you know this better than i do, about $100 this will this year. will it go lieu? >> i think the spend being cut will go through one way or the other. obviously i'd rather see us do a budget, prioritizing spending instead of cutting everything and we should eliminate programs that no longer work. one way or another there's a spending cut that will happening. i think it's better if we eliminate programs that are no longer useful and prioritize spending. that's what people do at home and we should be doing here. >> how about letting the spending sequester go through and then have a new budget for the new year and which will presumably trim budgets even more. >> larry, the one issue -- i serve on the armed services committee as well and i think there are some cuts there that go way too far. secretary panetta said we'd be undermining our national security for generations. the safety and security of our country, particularly with what we see happening overseas right now we've got to focus on. o
concerned about this health care -- new health care law. it is already going to cost me millions in my current budget to implement it, effective 200014. >> why is it costing you millions? what's the source oaf that expense? >> the source of the expense is the current growth in the medicaid program. once it begins this 2014 they'll try to have a number of people sign up for the current medicaid program. in my state, that'll be about $72 million. >> and are your businesses going to essentially take the penalty rather than the mandate and put their workers on to the so-called exchange? >> you know, i don't think we know the answer to that question yet. there's so much uncertainty and unknown. our businesses are still trying to figure it out. but i do know this. they're very, very concerned about the cost of obama care. >> all right. we'll leave it there. governor dave heinman of nebraska. good luck and thanks for coming on. >>> now talk about a p.r. nightmare. boeing 787 dreamliners remain grounded around the world tonight. but did the stock bounce back? we have some answers ahead, i thin
that is their biggest mistake. that is already the law. the democrats are trying to hedge on it. the president has already said it's not going to happen. this is where the republicans should go. and they won't go there. and that's why i doubt their bona fides on spending. >> you have to first of all as i said before get across that spending levels are stoo high. keith, you would agree with that, right? >> no. >> see what i mean? they're too high. >> perfect. right. >> you think this level is appropriate. 25% gdp. >> you're talking about gdp to spending -- >> yeah. >> yeah, that is too high. but that's not because we're spending too much. it's because our revenues aren't -- the reason our revenues is r. in decline is we're in a very weak recovery. we got out of the worst resgs -- >> whose fault is that? >> there was a president who came in before us. i don't know -- >> you can't keep blaming bush. you're in your second term. >> bill clinton. >> he doubled the national debt. >> his last budget was $1.8 trillion. obamas first fully owned budget was $3.8 trillion. 1.8, 3.8. >> guess what happened duri
